Back pain is a common health problem that most Australians experience at some point in their lives.

 

Though lower back pain is a result of strain or injury, a number of other conditions may cause back pain such as arthritis, osteoporosis, spinal problems, etc.

 

 

The Main Causes of Back Pain-

 

Some of you might think that the aching pain in the lower back is related to structural problems and spinal fragility, which is normally not the case.

 

Lower back pain can be attributed to a number of factors including physical activity, poor posture, obesity, injury, stress, and even some sudden movements.

 

If you are one of the millions of back pain sufferers, you might want a treatment that provides relief from pain. A massage is the perfect therapy to relieve pain. Knots in your shoulders, chronic stiffness in your lower back or pulled muscles that aroused from bending over can all negatively impact your life.

 

Studies have revealed that massage is an effective therapy for coping with lower back pain. Massage uses specific manipulation of the muscles in order to achieve therapeutic goals. Massage can reduce pain and promote overall well-being.    

Research says it all-

A study published in Pain Medicine by researchers from the University of Kentucky and Indiana University stated that ‘massage can help individuals with lower back pain.’ The study looked at 104 individuals with persistent pain. Each person was referred to a professional massage therapist and provided with 10 massage sessions over a 12 week period. More than 50 percent of the participants reported improvement. Of those, 75 percent noted that they still felt better after 24 weeks.

A 2011 study published in Annals of Internal Medicine concluded- ‘massage may be effective for treating chronic back pain, with benefits lasting at least 6 months. Researchers examined 401 people that reported chronic back pain. Individuals were divided into three treatment groups: relaxation massage, structural massage, and regular physical therapy and pain medication. Patients in the massage groups received one hour of weekly therapy for 10 weeks.  Both massage treatments had significantly greater effects than usual physical therapy. There was no clinical difference between the two types of massage.’

Experiencing regular massage will help relieve your aching back. As a complementary therapy, massage provides relief from the following symptoms-

  • Muscle spasms
  • Knots and tension
  • Stiffness and pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Postural problems

Massage is an effective treatment for lower back pain. Integrate a regular massage in your healthcare regime and say goodbye to your aches and pains.
